    I actually liked Retrax for his uniqueness. Though I share the opinions about his robot mode arms being lackluster.

    I guess Noctorro for me, I could never figure out those wing things.

    Noctorro, Retrax, and Transquito. Also, the beetle from Tripredacus. Don't market a toy that's impossible to transform to kids (hell, I've had it 10+ years now and I still can't do it)

    In defense of Retrax, his articulation limits worked for this:

    All four Mutants tie for worst in my book. The Happy meal BW toys were better. But what can one expect for remolded Animorph figures.

    I'm going to go the unpopular route here, and say Cheetor. Actually, Dinobot, as I do really like the bot head on Cheetor (but that's about the only thing I like on that mold). The bone legs in bot mode (and resulting undercarriage in dino-mode) and silly looking feet/chestlumps just strike me as being really bad design decisions. The rest of the figure is just kinda "meh", like it doesn't really have anything going for it to make me like it (aside from the character, which is not something the mold itself actually brings to the table).
    Cheetor, nothing about him really looks cool to me... except that robot head, which somehow makes the rest of the figure look kinda neat by association.
    Can't comment on Transquito or Retrax because I never owned them (I want retrax though, shitty arm artic. be damned!). Injector I've also never owned, but have seen him in person before and I kinda like him for some reason.

    Hmm hard question... After reading the previous posts I can notice that "preferences" go after 2 molds:

    - Retrax

    - Injector


    Retrax is very very fun to play in beast mode. His BW II repaint looks cool, but when you go to robot mode, it's a sjame that you can't do much to pose him, specially for the arms and those ridiculous small feet.


    Injector on the other hand is ugly, but he HAS TO BE since Fuzors are BW that went wrong. Injector is not os fun to play in beast mode but the robot mode is very poseable.

    I have him as part of my BW NEO Blendtrons as Rartorata (same colors, only difference is the use of gray in some parts of arms and legs), and I ahve to say that he's fun to pose.


    So I think Retrax woiuld be the wordt of these 2 candidates.
